A photographic panorama of weddings at Villa del Balbianello, Lake Como.

These images were taken at Villa Del Balbianello, Lenno, Tremezzina, during my services as  wedding photographer or elopement photographer.
If you are looking for a surprise proposal photographer please look at the dedicated section below.

My intention here is to present an extensive photo gallery showing both wedding photos and neighboring Lake Como.
Here, I show you details as well as wide landscapes with the promontory of the villa and the scenic vistas you will see from this very famous venue.

The Villa del Balbianello is certainly the most famous of Lake Como, not only for its wonderful position but also know for Star WarsJames Bond and other films.

I photographed many a wedding here and have a strong working relationship with the staff of this venue. I know every angle and the right time to create the most impactful photos under the best lighting.

Images are worked with my dedicated Lario Lightroom Presets  –  Balbianello.
I created this developing preset to preserve the best natural colors and contrast of this Lake Como area.

Weddings, elopements, couples: always in the best

One thing remains fundamental: the area occupied by the gardens of the villa is relatively large and has numerous differences in height between ramps, terraces and hills.
The photographer must be familiar with the location in order to quickly reach, without difficulty, the most photogenic points of the villa, including the lesser known areas that only local photographers will have knowledge of.
Villa del Balbianello is one of those locations where knowledge of ‘the best light’ is certainly not adequate enough.

How to obtain the best images

The photographer will try to be as discrete as possible, but due to the layout, within the villa grounds, quality of work is paramount.
After the proposal, the photographer shoots all other images, as regularly occurs…

– Unfortunately the Villa del Balbianello doesn’t offer real spots which allow the photographer to stay unnoticed.
– The framing isn’t always controlled. The style is candid so the photographer’s expertise cannot be completely used to capture the moment in the best possible situation.
Unwanted objects and people could be in the frame. It often happens.
– Naturally the girl cries. This happens extremely frequently. Therefore the following photoshoot is taken with smudged make-up and a red nose.

Not the fine art of photography, do you agree?
Let me introduce the good news: “I can offer you the solution for all of this, and its proven to work!”
How do we achieve this? Please contact me… as it’s a secret that I share only with my couples.
Once booked, I will introduce you to a password protected post with all the instructions to obtain the most perfect images here.

LAKE COMO PHOTOGRAPHER: ambient photography

I'm Luca, and I'm local

I often receive compliments for the precision of my compositions, of how I place the various elements within the frame.
You can be sure “Which kind of principles do you use for framing?” is a question addressed in the FAQ regarding my style.

My most important inspirations come from painters: the Italian XVIII Century Vedutisti and Kandinsky.
Addressing my style, I obviously take close portraits, but my subjects often become characters of a theatrical representation, being inserted in a scenography.

These kind of double subject images – both you and a well framed landscape or architecture photography – will complete your stunning storytelling in the most affective way.
This is a very important concept, as you have chosen Lake Como for its unique and pictoresque landscapes. I will include you within the scenery in the finest and most descriptive way.

Would you like your dream story on Lake Como captured this way?
